Navigating the world of small business

Maybe you have an idea for a new business. Maybe you're ready to be your own boss. Maybe you've had your own business for several years and are ready to expand. But how are you going to get your ideas off the ground? With a wealth of information for potential and current small business owners, the Alaska Small Business Development Center can help you get your wings. "We have three primary areas—free one-on-one counseling, regular workshop training and an amazing array of resources," State Director Jan Fredericks said. "We have the largest business library in Alaska, subscribe to about 100 business publications, and provide training in all kinds of general and specialized topics." The SBDC is a partner program with the University of Alaska and the U.S. Small Business Administration, and promotes the growth of small business enterprise. "Business is a dynamic operation—it's always changing," Anchorage Director Deb Daisy said. "People who come in here will always come away with new information. We're here for everybody." The SBDC has offices across the state and a rural outreach program. For more information, visit
